Humperdinck: Hansel and Gretel

Opus Arte: OA 1011D. Damrau and Kirchschlager star in Humperdinck’s famous fairytale opera.

“Directors Patrice Caurier and Moshe Leiser combine their characteristic wit and a dash of deliciously dark comedy with the opera’s fairytale charm. Humperdinck’s music mixes catchy folk-like songs with sumptuous instrumental colour, making the result as tunefully approachable, musically memorable and visually delightful as opera gets. 1st performance Weimar, 1893.”
